What cracks, what dents appear in the density of everyday pressures and ageing? Why is the body sometimes sensitive to every sound?
Internal Terrains explores life as a choreography of decades, in search of what’s at stake as we move from one decade to another. Poetic and sensual, the performance plays chords with films and installations, crows, cages and electric shocks.
Developed partly in the studio and partly through workshops with DMU students, who will be sharing stories and work with Natasha in the weeks before performance to translate them into visual metaphors around body, memory and identity.
Created, written and performed by Natasha Davis. Developed in collaboration with: Bob Karper (sound), Branislava Kuburovic (written documentation), Elisa Gallo Rosso (objects), Lucy Cash (movement) and Marty Langthorne (lights).
Originally commissioned by Chelsea Theatre London, Colchester Arts Centre and Live Collision Dublin. Funded by Arts Council England, Hosking Houses Trust and Theatre Studies at the University of Warwick. Supported by Littoral.
